This piece of content is especially relevant for gay teens and those in their twenties. But, if I'm being honest, I'm conflicted about the message in this clip. Are relationships essential, or have we been conditioned to think they are? @cher speak on it

Coming 30/01/18 “The Rain In The Sky”, my new science fiction thriller: Encarta Island went dark 36 hours ago. Rain Corporation, owners of the island and the precious research facility situated there, send in their alpha crew but swiftly lose contact. Running out of time, and options, the corporation is forced to send in their prototype soldier to invesigate. Sky, a soldier cloned from the cells of a dead woman, reaches the island and finds horrors of biological warfare and the faint whispers of a conspiracy. Her investigation leads her to the dark corners of cellular mutagenics and viral pathogens, all the while she seems faced with inexplicable truth that she's connected to the events on the island somehow. The more she probes the more she's brought to face unsettling truths about herself, her predecessor, the woman she was cloned from and the dubious ethics of the technology that made her. Sky doesn't know that her presence on the island, and her awakening, is all part of something much more complex... . .

Getting to #yallforbrunch early allows for long-neglected reflective writing time. Spending time with your own thoughts can be scary.

LOST LOVE . . . I did not want to answer, so I froze, staring off into the distance, wiping invisible lint from my gym shorts. I licked my lips, and after taking another swig from my water bottle, I said, “I can’t remember the last time my father spent any quality time with me.” I looked beyond the tennis courts; pain flooded my heart while the memories sped to the forefront of my mind. “I honestly don’t remember if he ever spent time with my sister or me,” I stated, glancing down, kicking a pebble with my foot. “The only memories I have are the arguments between him and my mother. The nights he would come around drunk, causing a scene. My dad provided for us, fulfilling his court-appointed responsibilities, which is the only good thing I can say. There’s nothing material I didn’t get if I wanted it, but the one thing I would have traded all that for was his love.” . . I sat withholding painful tears. “I wanted his love so bad, and to this day, I still do! So much so…” I shook my head, leaning forward, resting my elbows on my thighs, and placing the palms of my hands to my forehead. “I want his love so much, I think it’s slowly killing me inside!” I echoed in a sullen voice. “Life is so unfair…why would God allow such things to happen?” I looked over to my newfound confidant. “Officer Busby, what have I done wrong? Why does God hate me so much?” . . . Pick up your copy of “Battlefields “ today. A urban gay novel on Amazon Kindle and Print.

Just for today, let's take a moment from posting the photoshopped, perfectly coiffed hair, dressed-to-the nines pics. All that is great, and image is v important...but don't forget to be who you truly are. This is such a simple concept, but so many of us chase after BS and complications for years, in an effort to run away from our true essence. We try everything. I think most of us are afraid of being vulnerable and authentic, when all this fear does is that it wastes your time (I wish I had told them how I really feel, I wish I had spoken my mind) , and leaves a hole in your soul that no relationship, amount of travel or transient triviality can fix. Don't be afraid to be you, or speak your truth. If you don't, your true self will die and it'll ooze out and affect every aspect of your life.

Fun fact: I don’t wear that hat JUST for fashion. I’ll wear it when I’m just not in the mood to deal with styling my hair sometimes being stylish CAN be lazy!
